Wedding Favours are the bride and groom's way of saying thank you so much for coming and sharing my special day with me. There are numerous simple ways to add your own magical touch to Ibiza Wedding day.
From your very own Ibiza Wedding Favour Company - Ibiza Wedding Favours who deliver your favours direct to the wedding location or your hotel / villa to making your home made ones there are plenty of options out there. Here are some below
Nothing will remind your guests more the great time they had at your ibiza wedding than something local and Ibiza themed. There are plenty of options out there from Ibiza Salt to Ibiza Jam to the Famous Ibiza hierbas ibicencas.
Did you and your future spouse choose a beautiful flower in Ibiza that is symbolic to you in some way? Find seed packets for that flower and include them in a tiny bag, decorated to match your theme, with a thank you note attached. On the back of that note, write a small message describing the symbolism of the flower to you as a couple.
Everyone loves scented items, especially soaps and candles. Choose an aroma, reminiscent of Ibiza, such as a floral or ocean breeze scent. Create a personalized sticker with a message to attach to the packaging. These favors can be gifted in a small tin or a small bag. Scented gifts will remind your guests about their trip, long after the wedding.
Everyone will be ready for some fun in the sun at your beautifully planned Ibiza wedding! They may already have sunglasses handy, but they won’t be as fun as the ones you provide! Choose color coordinating sunglasses, as they will make for great photo ops- don’t forget to include them in your scavenger hunt!
Bubbles and Champagne
An oldie, but goodie, bubbles just might be the perfect addition to your table décor! Get creative with glitter, lace, tulle, ribbon, or paint. The possibilities are endless!
Wine or Cava
Your guests will love these super cute, small, travel sized wine bottles! You get to choose whether there will be an option between white or red wine, although choosing one flavor for everyone might be more feasible. Choose your favorite! Moscato is a popular flavor! For the finishing touch, replace the wine bottle label with a personalized label of your own. You can use a catchy slogan or the names of the happy couple.
Nothing like a breath freshener after a meal. There are numerous ways to get creative with the packaging. The mints can be in a roll, a mini bag, a tin, or a small glass jar- add a tag or sticker with a catchy phrase, such as, “Mint to Be!”
Summer weddings in Ibiza can reach sweltering temperatures. Provide your guests with a nice little hand fan to keep cool and comfortable as they enjoy your wedding. If you feel these fold out hand fans might be too complicated, you can opt for paddle fans instead. The paddle fans will also give you room for creativity, and the ability to tailor them to your theme. You can add a photo of the happy couple, flowers, or decoration of choice. The hand fans are a lot easier to carry around and provide cooler air flow.
Mix CD of Wedding Songs
Create a mix CD of songs from your wedding and give your guests a memory to keep with them forever. This CD could be a compilation of the songs for the first dance, father and daughter dance, bouquet toss, and any other special songs of your choice.
Share your good fortune with your guests by way of a fortune cookie! These cookies are very affordable, when ordered in bulk, and come in a variety of flavors. Most companies carry a vast array of colors and flavors, including the traditional vanilla. You also have the option of custom made flavors, colors, and a space to enter custom fortunes to be printed on the cookies.

If you’re planning for success you have landed on the right site!
Even if you are a beginner in the wedding planning scene it is very clear from day one what you must list will vaguely look like. Here is a hint:
Wedding Planning To Do List:
Once you have these items ticked off the box you will be able to draw up a schedule of the event and slot in each component (the cake-cutting, the first dance). We recommend that you get your first suggested draft from your caterer, as they will have experience in the full wedding planning process.
Right, now that you have your ‘to do list’ – where to start:
First step: The Wedding Venue
Finding the right wedding venue is not only about liking someone else’s wedding photographies. As I run two very different business I get to see many people making site inspections to wedding venues in Ibiza and I can tell you that, it is not the beauty that connects people, but the vibe to the location (call me hippie if you like, but trust me that this really does happen, and that is the magic of this island!). So, start by judging the book by the cover and make your Top 5 or 6 venues (if you can reduce this number then fab!). Then, check that they are all reasonably in your budget and go ahead and book your tickets to visit Ibiza. Yes! I said visit. Visiting your wedding venue is such an important step when planning your own Ibiza wedding.
Site inspections are not something that should be underestimated, and recognising that you are not a professional in the industry means that you will need to keep a few aspects to bear in mind.
Second step: Plan Your Ibiza Site Visit
Now that you know your dates, plan your stay in Ibiza and make the most out of it. Draw up a schedule of those 2-4 days you’ll be spending on the island and maximize your wedding planning like a pro!
Here is an example of how to optimise your site visits:
Third step: Fill in the Gaps
Once the sun has gone, schedule a few suppliers that you have short listed and meet up with you. We recommend:
Fourth step: Wrap it up
Before you land back home, try and make sure that you have all your notes in place. If you drag this homework back with you, it is most probable that this will pile up with your usual work and home duties. Remember that being your part-time wedding planner implies that you will have to wear your wedding planner hat at times, and this should always be the case while visiting Ibiza before the event (unless you specifically plan for a wedding planned day off).
Once you get back home, dedicate some time and email all suppliers you have met to thank them for their time and to provide them with an estimate time line of decision making.
